2016 - Climate Abu Dhabi

The ‘Climate Technology 2030’ Forum during the 2016 Climate Abu Dhabi is a hands-on, forward-looking seminar programme that brings additional value to manufacturers, building consultants, contractors, designers, planners, energy managers, public policy makers, and everyone else interested in the latest and upcoming developments concerning Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, and Food Cold Chain Technologies. It incorporates the Abu Dhabi Vision 2030 of ‘Creating a sustainable Emirate that protects resources for current and future generations’. As co-organisers, Climate Abu Dhabi and Eurovent are now looking for organisers of 30-minute presentations as well as 1-hour panel sessions. Are you interested in one of the two?
